Karin Wikoff, Electronic and Technical Services Librarian, presented at the Academic Librarians Conference 2014 in Albany on Tuesday.  As Spokesperson for the Enhancing Access to Research Databases Work Group, an initiative of I2NY (Information Infrastructure for New York), she brought conference attendees up-to-date on the work of the Work Group's 5 Task Groups:

  • Licensing Manifesto Task Group
  • Licensing Toolkit Task Group
  • Article-on-Demand Pilot Task Group, of which Ms. Wikoff is the chair
  • Library Purchasing Cooperative Task Group, of which Ms. Wikoff is a member
  • Industry Analysis Task Group

The goal of the Enhancing Access to Research Databases Work Group is to find ways for libraries of all kinds within New York State to collaborate to improve affordable access to research databases and other information resources in order to support research, economic development, teaching and learning.

The mission of I2NY is "To ensure that all New Yorkers have seamless, unfettered, and affordable access to information, through the creation of a New York statewide information infrastructure which encourages collaboration and joint enterprises among the libraries and archives."
